Description: Daniel Winkler became a fulltime knifemaker in 1988 and received accreditation as an American Bladesmith Society master bladesmith in 1993. He has spent more than three decades studying and perfecting the nuances and handmade knives. Winkler Knives is a custom manufacturing operation that represents the evolution of Mastersmith Daniel Winkler’s knifemaking expertise coupled with the needs and field experience of Tier 1 Special Operations Teams from around the world.
This tool was crafted in the Winkler Knives shop in Northwestern North Carolina by skilled Blue Ridge Mountain artisans. It was created to provide unfailing performance and to last a lifetime. The Winkler Knives touchmark represents their unwavering commitment to producing the highest quality knives, axes, and breaching tools available.
The Utility Crusher is based on the Winkler Knives S.A.R. (now retired). A multi-tasker, it is a combination of the WK Utility Knife and the Drop Point Crusher. Serrations along the spine provide fiber cutting capabilities without giving up any of the cutting edge. The horizontal cross guard is an added safe guard. There is an effective glass breaker at the butt of the handle. This knife is made of 80CrV2 carbon steel with a non-reflective Caswell black oxide finish.
Handle scales are black/brown laminate that has been hand sculpted (wasp). A distal tapered tang ensures exceptional balance.
The versatile Boltaron sheath with metal belt clip can be worn in a variety of positions with simple adjustments.
Made by artisans in the USA.
